I'm putting mstdn.io in approval mode to get rid of these fucking spammers. We'll see how it goes.
I hope it won't turn off people from trying Mastodon :(
"Why do you want to join?

In the end it's too much time consuming...
@Gargron thanks for the feature
@angristan lack of real antispam functionality is annoying
@animeirl It's manual spam though...
Even if it will, they can try other instances. So I think it is fine.
@angristan I insist there's should be some automated way to prevent spam (particularly, one that doesn't harm most legitimate use cases)
@angristan like, they all just have something in common, like maybe HTTP request headers or IP ranges or something
@espectalll no, they use real browsers from many random ISPs with valid email addresses...
